are continuing their fight against the affordable care act. obama care. governor chris christie of new jersey became the latest republican governor to reject the creation of a state-run health care exchange today. christie vetoed a bill that would have started the process. instead, leaving the implementation up to the federal government. christie says the federal government failed to provide the answers he needed to make a fiscally sound decision. the move came after christie met with the president at the white house to discuss federal disaster relief. the state health insurance exchange is a key component to the obama care. it allows millions of middle class households as well as small businesses to shop for private insurance. states must decide by next friday if they want to set up their own exchange. they will -- they were allowed more time to mull over the decision after many republican governors delayed action. perhaps expecting a different outcome to the presidential election. new jersey is just the latest state with a republican governor to on the for the federal government to step in
leave the floor, this can be done by the extender bill all by itself being passed or it can be, as we hope, president obama and speaker boehner have some sort of a framework for us to put meat on that framework so we don't go over the cliff to have this bill be a part of it. and when that whole fiscal cliff debate is about jobs, you don't want to forget about the 75,000 jobs and the wind energy. and a lot of these jobs have already been on the -- have already led to some layoffs. we could bring those people back to work pretty fast. i yield the floor. i guess i would suggest the absence of a quorum. quorum call: a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from nebraska. mr. johanns: thank you, mr. president. mr. president, the founders of this great country -- spoeup sir, we're -- the presiding officer: sir, we're in a quorum call. january january -- mr. johanns: mr. president, i ask the quorum call be set aside. the presiding officer: without objection. the senator from nebraska. mr. johanns: the founders of this great country wanted the senate to be set up as a body
things worse? focus on economic growth. bring out those jobs bills that we fought for. many of them had bipartisan votes. that was a big issue that came out of this election. obama was not talking about jobs or how to control spending. all he wants is an unlimited debt ceiling increase in he can continue going forward. you will see us continue to fight for those principles. we know that is what will eventually help solve these problems. >> look, what we need -- i guess -- roc but something forward that when to 2 rates. -- 2% rates. we should have raised taxes -- we need a plan that inspires. everyone understands that the tax code is broken. how many of you inc. said the tax code is broken? every hand goes up. think about it. any tax code that says half the population, you do not have to participate in the vein tax, is broken. any tax code that says to american companies we will charge you the highest corporate rate in the world is stupid. it is broken and stupid. you might want to start over. here is what we are for, here is what helps your family. here is how it makes a difference for
